    Anniversary

    Celebration

    Tomorrow will be the three month anniversary of my mastectomy. At that time I was so scared and sad, and sure that my life would be changing forever. It might have--but not in the way I expected. I'm looking at everything in a whole new light, so grateful to be alive and cancer free. I retired from teaching a year ago, but kept subbing and never really put that part of my life behind me. Now I'm ready to look in a different direction, take better care of myself, and appreciate the wonderful friends, family, and life that surround me.
